I was in New York City for a Feng Shui Consultation and before heading over, I decided to visit the Fort Washington Park, located along the world famous Hudson River. A few things that intrigued me to explore. First, it was an absolute beautiful day outside. Second, I needed a break from all the urban energy. And third, I heard about a "Little Red Light House" that was built directly underneath the George Washington Bridge. And so, my journey began! Both photographs by New York City Feng Shui Consultant Laura Cerrano of Feng Shui Manhattan (photographed on May 2nd, 2019) I spent about an hour at the Fort Washington Park, strolling along the path, observing the amazing engineering of the bridge, and just taking time to appreciate the pocket of Zen energy provided by NYC Parks.

This was a really interesting article to be interviewed for by Voice of America, Washington, D.C.. In short, the practice of Feng Shui that was once banned by the Communist Party in China, is now reviving. Eastern and Western Feng Shui practitioners were interviewed about how they see Feng Shui influencing and expanding its reaches on a global scale. The spark for this discussion was due to the Chinese real estate tycoon Pan Shiyi winning a lawsuit around Feng Shui.  Click Marxism-Leninism, Chinese People Regain Their Feng Shui to read the full article.

Nolita. One of the Best Neighborhoods in New York CityPicturesque Nolita is a charming, upscale area with a trendy vibe.

 Clean carpets provide many benefits for a family’s lifestyle and home. Clean carpets are the foundation of stylish, comfortable, and cozy home decor. Professional carpet cleaning NYC is required to keep carpets beautiful and clean. Aesthetics Carpets that look as attractive as possible are an aesthetic aspect when people visit a home. A poorly kept carpet ruins the mood of a room regardless of how nice the rest of the design. Well-kept carpets make an immediate positive impression, even when the décor is not that great. Health Clean carpets have the potential of improving a family’s health. Many people have allergies or suffer from other health problems such as eczema or asthma.

Recent Manhattan Real Estate Reports The billionaire Warren Buffet said it best, "Price is what you pay, value is what you get . . . It is wise to be fearful when others are greedy and greedy when others are fearful." Some recent reports on real estate in New York City have made some people fearful. When we look at the broad picture and the overall statistics in those reports it is fairly clear as to why those people are fearful. But is there more to it than the overall and the general? We would say, "Most definitely, yes." We would also say that this is a good time to buy – without being greedy. The Bigger PictureBefore we look at some specific – rather than general – real estate statistics, let us take a helicopter-pilot's view of things. The Dow and NASDAQ are riding high.
